News-Antique.com - Nov 12,2007 - Dallas, TX. Heritage Auction Galleries is presenting its inaugural Signature Auction at the Money Show of the Southwest, taking place in Houston, November 29-30, 2007. Descriptions and images of all lots are currently posted at HA.com, and are available for bidding. Combining the Signature and Final Session catalogs, nearly 4,000 lots covering a broad range of coinage will be auctioned.
According to Heritage President Greg Rohan, "Our year-end events continue to be very successful, with buyers and sellers seeking the last major auctions before the New Year. Heritage's schedule includes two November Signature events - the first in Dallas, and the second in Houston. The Houston catalogs include hundreds of Registry-leading coins."
"The November Houston catalog is anchored by several important collections," continued Rohan. "The Michael Fuller Registry Collection Of Washington Quarters greatly extends Heritage's leadership in auctioning Registry collections. Fuller has assembled a world-class collection that has captured six different #1 Current/#1 All-Time rankings in different categories, as well as additional Registry honors. The Nick-A-Jack Collection was assembled by an astute investor who started collecting back in the 1970s, in addition to investing in many other areas; at the age of 92, he is still actively and successfully trading options. The Pearl E. Pemberton Collection contains more than thirty gold dollars collecting by this astonishing woman who made the Land Run of 1889 into the unassigned lands of Oklahoma with her father; she ultimately visited the capitol buildings of all 50 states with her husband of 56 years, as well as traveling internationally. Before her death in 1980, Mrs. Pemberton often told friends and family that she had lived through the most interesting time of history: she traveled by horse and buggy as a child, later by automobile, then airplane and jet, and had lived to see a man walk on the moon."
"Our final anchor consignment is the Fleur Wales-Baillie Collection, with selected lots benefiting the Khumbula Thina Trust," concluded Rohan. "The Khumbula Thina Trust is a U.S. 501-[C]3 Private Operating Foundation working in the Zulu lands of Africa. The funds generated will be used to expand the territory for existing wildlife, and establish a water system of lakes and ponds for aquatic birdlife. I encourage you to view their fascinating website at www.Khumbula.org for additional details."
November 2007 Houston U.S. Coin Highlights:
Lot 60109: 1902 Indian Cent, PR68 Red PCGS
PCGS has awarded a PR68 grade to just nine Indian cents across all dates; this is one of only two pieces certified by PCGS as PR68 Red.
Lot 60265: 1938-D Buffalo Nickel, MS68 PCGS
The 1938-D is popular with type collectors, and such practically flawless pieces are especially desirable; none certified finer.
Lot 60284: 1831 Half Dime, PR67 NGC, V-1, LM-6, R.8
Proofs are known for all 1831 denominations coined, and the half dime is the second-rarest proof denomination; this may be the sole surviving proof LM-6 and is the single finest certified example.
